Driver indicted for causing fatal accident

Posted: Sunday, April 30, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Seward man was indicted Friday on murder and assault charges for his part in a Seward Highway crash this month that killed two state workers and injured another.

Michael Glaser, 43, had a blood-alcohol level of at least .258, more than twice the legal limit for driving, according to Alaska State Troopers.

A Kenai grand jury indicted Glaser on two counts of second-degree murder for the deaths of Martin Richard, 50, and Ladd Macaulay, 57, both long-time Juneau residents.

Richard headed the state Division of Investments, where Macauley worked as a loan officer.

Glaser was also indicted on a first-degree assault charge for injuries sustained by Steven McGee, 49, a Juneau-based biologist with the Department of Fish and Game.

Troopers said the three men were returning to Anchorage on April 19 after inspecting fish hatcheries when Glaser's pickup crossed into their lane and smashed head-on into their rental car.
